The San Francisco Pride weekend is one of the biggest weekends of the year for Sundance Saloon, second only to the Sundance Stompede. Dozens of volunteers are needed to produce the three back-to-back dances Saturday night, Sunday day, and Sunday night.

Log-in required

View only, no log-in required

Required to sign up for a shift on-line.
If you volunteered for a prior Stompede, Castro Street Fair, New Year's Eve, or SF Pride, you already have an account in the Special Event volunteer system.


You do not have to use this system to volunteer. You can contact the volunteer coordinator with your name, e-mail address, cell phone number, and shifts desired, and we will get you signed up. Or call us at 415-820-1403 and leave a message with the above information.

Special note to Sundance Saloon volunteers: The Sundance Saloon volunteer system is different and separate from our Sundance Special Event volunteer system. We suggest that you use the same User ID (e-mail address) and password for both systems.

If you volunteered since 2011 for a prior Stompede, Castro Street Fair, New Year's Eve Dance, or SF Pride, you already have an account in the Special Event volunteer system.

Problems or questions about logging in with your account? Contact us. Please add volunteer@sundancesaloon.org to your e-mail address book. This system relies on getting messages to you.
